Bishop Michael has asked for the following to be included in the parish newsletter:
“Do you support Catholic schools and the right of Catholics to send their children to them? Then we need you to make your voice heard. The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admission cap which prevents Catholic schools from allowing all Catholic pupils to attend. They have acknowledged that this policy discriminates against Catholics and promised to abandon it, now we need you to tell them not to u-turn on their promise to Catholics.
Visit http://catholicnews.org.uk or search for ‘Catholic education’ in your search engine to write to the Government and urge them to drop their policy which bans new Catholic Schools.”
The full letter from the Bishop is in the narthex.
